I'd love to not have them get me sick or decide to share a sleeping bag with me.

I didn't see any at Bald Eagle last week. We did see a ton at Jones Jole last year and one made its way into my buddies dry box. We caught it in a Pringles can and let it go and ran straight for the river and looked like it was trying to cross. Seemed like a long swim for a mouse.
Pool and a pond... Pond be good for you.

rat/mouse trap

Smear a thin ring of peanut butter on the bottle (a band around the label) and let it float in the bucket filled about 3/4. Place a board from the floor to the edge of the bucket so they can see that which they smell and when they jump down they might do a log roll for a second before losing to the water.

I've heard farmers back in the midwest are able to bag 20-30 a night in their livestock barns using this method.

Anyone have an extra feral alley cat or two they could drop off for a week or so?

We ran Westwater this weekend (Sat Night) and stayed at the Cottonwood site. No mice there. The site was clean when we arrived and left.
